1964 MORRIS MINI COOPER S MK1

KEY FACTS 

  • A superb, fully restored example of an iconic British classic, which retains its original body shell.  
  • It is powered by a new-old-stock 1275cc inline-four from the same year, coupled to a replacement and fully refurbished four-speed synchromesh manual gearbox. 
  • It was restored between 2015 and 2020, with excellent documentation on file, and benefits from a recent final snagging session and tune-up.  

EQUIPMENT AND FEATURES 

  • This Morris Mini Cooper S is thought to be one of just three examples to leave the factory in a special order single colour scheme of Tweed Grey, but its roof has since been resprayed white during the restoration.  
  • It has rubber cone suspension, otherwise known as ‘dry’ suspension, which was only fitted to Cooper S models until September 1964, when it was replaced with the Hydrolastic system.  
  • The fresh interior trim was supplied by leading specialist, Newton Commercial. 
  • It will be accompanied by its original owner's manual, along with a workshop manual and an extensive record of the restoration process, including invoices and photographs.  
  • The original engine block that had been over-bored is also available, should the next owner wish to keep it with the car. 

CONDITION 

  • Its bodywork remains original, but it has been comprehensively restored and repainted in the original Tweed Grey, so the finish is in genuinely superb order. 
  • Similarly, its re-trimmed two-tone cream and grey upholstery is in excellent shape, with very little mileage covered since the restoration. 
  • All of the electrics and switches work as they should. 
  • The most recent MOT test was on 9 May 2020 at 75,221 miles, which was a clean pass with no advisories or defects. It is exempt from mandatory testing on the basis of age. 

SERVICE HISTORY 

  • The car was restored by various specialists between 2015 and 2020, comprising a refurbishment of the original body shell and front subframe, while the rear subframe was replaced.  
  • Its most recent service was in June 2020, where technicians at Wellbrook Motor Services in East Sussex replaced the airbox, steering rack, and carburettor floats and needles as part of a final post-restoration tune-up.  

SUMMARY 

This Morris Mini Cooper S is a superb example of an iconic 1960s performance car, which has been comprehensively restored over a period of six years. Now in wonderful condition, and remaining faithful to its factory specification, it would make a fun weekend B-road companion and a fine display vehicle for any classic car show.
